Keke Rosberg

The hard working 'Flying Finn' of Formula One fame

Keke Rosberg

Known universally as ‘The Flying Finn’, Keijo (Keke) Rosberg is a true legend in Formula One motor racing. And before he got to those heady heights of success, the motivational speaker worked incredibly hard – in one season he took part in 41 races over just 36 weekends!

Winning in only his second Formula One race, Rosberg went on to have a fantastic career but he retired from the sport shortly after the death on track of his good friend Elio de Angelis.

Not wanting to walk away from the sport completely, Rosberg went on to manage other Finnish drivers, including the highly successful Mika Häkkinen and Keke’s son Nico, who has won various races, including the 2012 Chinese Grand Prix and the 2015 Mexican Grand Prix. In 2013, the motivational speaker and Nico became the first father and son to win at Monaco – with 30 years between the wins.

Keke knows what it takes to succeed at the very highest level and his talks illustrate to those listening not only that hard work pays off but also that doing what you love in the face of adversity can have its own massive rewards.
